THE ANNAPURNAS

The Annapurnas offer jaw dropping views of valleys and the Himalayas. Whether you’re a hard core trekker or simply looking to experience local life in rural Nepal, the Annapurna region will leave you wanting more. Walk through villages hundreds of years old, see farmers work the land and how the locals live in this extreme climate.

POON HILL

Known for the best sunrise view in the Annapurna’s, the pre-dawn walk is about an hour’s ‘gentlish’ climb from Ghorepani and affords views of six peaks over 7,500m.

Itinerary

Met upon arrival in Kathmandu and transfer to your hotel.

Enjoy a tour of the city. Get  acquainted with the banks of the sacred Bagmati River and Boudhnath Stupa: the biggest Buddhist monument in Nepal and home to many Tibetans in the valley. (B)

You fly to Pokhara with views of the Manaslu and Annapurna ranges to the north and then drive to Kymchi where you begin your trek.

The trekking route passes through the picturesque village of Ghandruk and then through beautiful rhododendron forest to Tadapani where there are magnificent views of the Annapurna range and the ‘fishtail peak’ Machhapuchhare. The major highlight of this trek is that the route branches off the main trail and heads through forest and open alpine terrain to Bayeli and onto Kopra Ridge.

Kopra is the highlight of the trek. It is a spectacular location where there are perhaps some of the best mountain views in Nepal. The peaks of Nilgiri, Annapurna 1, Fang, Annapurna South and the Dhaulagiri ranges tower above and in contrast far below is the Kali Ghandaki Valley.

Lying between the peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and beyond towards Tibet, forming the worlds deepest gorge. From the ridge we descend through bamboo, rhodendron and oak forest to the village of Swanta.

From here we join the ancient trading route that heads through Ghorepani back towards Pokhara. In Ghorepani, take the pre sunrise detour to the top of Poon Hill for one of the best vistas in Nepal.

Our last night on the trail is at the village of Ulleri and then we trek to the roadhead at Naya Phul and drive back to Pokhara for a further day to explore the lakeside town.

Fly back to Kathmandu.(B)

Trip ends after breakfast. (B)
